It pays to be a tech investor with a solid system for crushing the market.
In fact, I just watched such a system pay off 265% for some of my paid-up members in a little less than a year.
Let me show you what I mean...
The system I'm talking about are the five rules for finding the best tech stocks - before they take off. These five filters - which you can find in Your Tech Wealth Blueprint - make it much easier to spot the winners from the losers.
Take the case of the Silicon Valley leader I recommended to readers of my Nova-X Report on Feb. 26, 2016. At the time, this company was largely out of favor on Wall Street.
But just five days after my initial rec, this company broke out on heavy volume. It would go on to become the top-gaining tech stock of 2016.
Today, let's walk through the process we used to select this chip leader that crushed the market by 24-fold.
And if you're thinking of checking out now because this is "old news"... don't.
This isn't just a history lesson.
Now then, I did have a bit of an "unfair" advantage here over Wall Street. I'm a Silicon Valley insider who served as a senior advisor to a dozen tech startups.
And I knew this company well from both investment and technology perspectives.
That allowed me to see that the graphics processing units (GPUs) from NVIDIA Inc. (Nasdaq: NVDA) could quickly be extended well beyond the firm's original focus on video games.
In my gut, I knew that those powerful processors could be tweaked to address the high-bandwidth needs of virtual reality (VR) and artificial intelligence (AI) - two tech sectors that are now on fire.
While I trust my gut, I don't allow it or my emotions to lead me astray. That's why we always run stocks through our five-part system.
Let's a look at how NVIDIA stacked up...
Rule No. 1: Great Companies Have Great Operations
We always look for well-run firms with top-notch leaders.
Jen-Hsun Huang, cofounder and CEO at NVIDIA, is a rare breed in Silicon Valley. He's an engineer by training who, since 1993, has built his firm from a startup into a $56.4 billion market-cap powerhouse.
These are founder-CEOs who defied the odds by staying in charge instead of being replaced by professional managers as their firms became global icons.
A native of Taiwan, Huang was named to the U.S. Immigrant Entrepreneur Hall of Fame when it was established in 2012. He's also received the Dr. Morris Chang Exemplary Leadership Award from the Global Semiconductor Association as well as the Daniel J. Epstein Engineering Management Award from the University of Southern C…
About the Author
Michael A. Robinson is a 36-year Silicon Valley veteran and one of the top tech and biotech financial analysts working today. That's because, as a consultant, senior adviser, and board member for Silicon Valley venture capital firms, Michael enjoys privileged access to pioneering CEOs, scientists, and high-profile players. And he brings this entire world of Silicon Valley "insiders" right to you...
- He was one of five people involved in early meetings for the $160 billion "cloud" computing phenomenon.
- He was there as Lee Iacocca and Roger Smith, the CEOs of Chrysler and GM, led the robotics revolution that saved the U.S. automotive industry.
- As cyber-security was becoming a focus of national security, Michael was with Dave DeWalt, the CEO of McAfee, right before Intel acquired his company for $7.8 billion.
This all means the entire world is constantly seeking Michael's insight.
In addition to being a regular guest and panelist on CNBC and Fox Business, he is also a Pulitzer Prize-nominated writer and reporter. His first book Overdrawn: The Bailout of American Savings warned people about the coming financial collapse - years before the word "bailout" became a household word.
Silicon Valley defense publications vie for his analysis. He's worked for Defense Media Network and Signal Magazine, as well as The New York Times, American Enterprise, and The Wall Street Journal.
And even with decades of experience, Michael believes there has never been a moment in time quite like this.
Right now, medical breakthroughs that once took years to develop are moving at a record speed. And that means we are going to see highly lucrative biotech investment opportunities come in fast and furious.
To help you navigate the historic opportunity in biotech, Michael launched the Bio-Tech Profit Alliance.
His other publications include: Strategic Tech Investor, The Nova-X Report, Bio-Technology Profit Alliance and Nexus-9 Network.
